Travel to Neverland! Photo and Video Roundup for Broadway-Bound FINDING NEVERLAND
As BroadwayWorld previosly reported, FINDING NEVERLAND, with music and lyrics by Gary Barlow and Elliot Kennedy, book by James Graham, and direction by Diane Paulus, will officially fly to Broadway. According to The New York Times, 'NEVERLAND' spokesperson Rick Miramontez, has confirmed that the new musical, which opened at A.R.T. earlier this week, will settle in at a Nederlander Organization theater in March 2015.
Producer Harvey Weinstein is currently in negotations with several different landlords for 'NEVERLAND.' Per The Times, Weinstein was reportedly intent on securing the St. James for the production's run, though the announced revival of SIDE SHOW has halted that intitial hope.
In FINDING NEVERLAND, when a playwright meets a widow and her four boys in Kensington Gardens, he embarks on a friendship that inspires one of the most beloved stories of all time. Based on the Miramax film written by David Magee, Finding Neverland follows the real-life relationship between the Llewelyn Davies family and James Matthew Barrie as he writes the revolutionary 1904 play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Staged by A.R.T. Artistic DirectorDiane Paulus and with music by U.K. pop sensation Gary Barlow (Take That), this new musical explores the power of imagination to open up new worlds, and the pressures put upon those worlds by the prospect of growing up.
